Make Yogurt easily with our DELUXE YOGOTHERM YOGURT MAKING KIT  ; You can also use your Insta-Pot to make yogurt!

Home Yogurt Makers: 
this packet will make 20 1/2 gallon batches of yogurt.
Usage rate:  1/16 teaspoon for 1/2 gallon of milk,   or 1/8 tsp for 1-2 gal. 3.78(l) of milk. 
Heat the milk to 180F and let stay at that temp for about 5-10 minutes.  Allow to cool to 105-108F (you can expedite cooling with an ice bath)
Using a dry sanitized small spoon, remove the culture and distribute onto the warmed milk to inoculate at 105F - 108F.
Let the culture dissolve for a couple of minutes, then gently stir in to the warm milk.  Allow milk to incubate at approx 105F for 8 hours. 
(You can go longer if you want a more tart yogurt).   
Pour gently into a colander lined with cheesecloth, or better yet, a Nylon Draining Bag.
Set the colander into a larger bowl so whey drains into the larger bowl; cover with plastic wrap and allow to drain for about 8-10 hours in your refrigerator.
Longer draining = thicker yogurt.  Remove from refrigerator and spoon into a storage vessel such as a glass jar.  Eat and enjoy! 
Store Yogurt in refrigerator.
Store unused ABY-3 Culture inside a zip lock bag in your freezer; away from moisture.
OPTIONAL Items to include:

Use our food grade nylon straining bags to strain out some of the yogurt whey which will result in a thicker yogurt.  Easy to use and clean- reusable

and much easier to use with Yogurt Making than cheese cloth.

  • Our Small/Nut Bag size draining bag will accommodate up to 1/2 -1 gallon batches while our Larger Light Duty bag will accommodate up to 5-7 gallons.
  • Order small volume measuring spoons as an option; 5 spoons from   1/32nd teaspoon - 1/4 teaspoon

    Excellent, mild yogurt

    Posted by Susan on 28th Dec 2023

    This culture was new to me and I was dubious at the small quantity used per batch. But it worked beautifully. (Commercial, organic, whole milk, yogued overnight in quart jars in the oven w/ light on.) Yogurt is—as labeled—very mild. A really pleasant everyday yogurt, and also drained as Greek style. Very pleased with quality and price and will buy again.

    Great Yogurt Cultuer

    Posted by Conni on 6th Feb 2023

    I tried this because my normal culture was not available. The yogurt turned out great! Exactly as it is named, Thick and Mild. I used raw goat milk and had very good results. This is also very reasonably priced which is another bonus!
